‘If the time still goes around’ is Yuta’s latest recording and is a soulful,bluesy collection of heart touching Ballads composed by Yuta. It is more than healing music for the soul.First track “Piece of heartache” is a great example of Yuta’s incredible talent for writing ballads.
I dedicated two songs “Song for camphor tree” and “Harbour side blues”to the restaurant manager at ‘Camphor tree’ a venue I performed at regularly in Yokohama, Japan. A dear friend and a lover of the blues . His passing touched me deeply and I dedicated the above compositions to his memory.
“If the time still goes around” is composition for so many unanswered questions and the hope and belief I have.
“Senja di melaka” means sunset of melaka. I was inspied  by multi culture over there.”Cold limelight” is my personal feelings. Words fail but music speaks.
The last track “Deep ocean in the sky” is a composition where I tried to capture the moment between evening and night. My favourite time of the day. I started playing guitar when i was sixteen years old and i started composing when I was twenty .
I have turned thirty now and I sense my real music journey started 10years ago.
As a composer, as a guitarist. I offer you this new album.


1曲目の”Piece of heartache” は自分らしいバラード曲と言えます。

“Song for camphor tree” と” Harbour side blues” は最近急になくなってしまったレストランのマスターに書いた曲です。横浜でいつもライブをやらせてもらっていて、ブルースが好きなマスターでした。
” If the time still goes around”は自分の願いや疑問を込めた曲です、時代は廻っていると信じています。”Senja di melaka”はマレーシアにあるマラッカの不思議な魅力にインスパイアされ生まれた曲です。

“Cold limelight”は個人的な気持ちを込めたものです。言葉では表現出来ない気持ちをギターでは表現できます。

最後の曲”Deep ocean in the sky”は夕方と夜の間の空が海のような景色になる時間のイメージです。
